  • I wouldn't say these tips are 'useless' to everybody, but anybody who has been at it a while probably already knows most of this stuff. I do have to comment on the slide that says people always read cover letters. That is just plain wrong. I can't count how many company web sites don't even give the opportunity to submit a cover letter, and I've been told by many HR people and hiring managers that they don't read them ever. I know that many people still DO read and expect a cover letter, but I feel those numbers are dwindling. Yet a prospective candidate should never assume nobody will read their cover letter because the one that does may just like yours. 'Leave no stone unturned' as they say. That's also how I approach my sales activities. You just never know where an opportunity will turn up and you don't want to miss it because you didn't do something you know you should have.
